Charlevoix Castle Farms Show -- 3rd Post

Today I'll include the last pictures from Castle Farms. As I continued walking around the castle, I captured pictures of the Garden Railroad. It opened in July 208 and was expanded in 2010. Up to 35 trains can be run simultaneously on seven multi-tiered tracks. The railroad is set among the gardens and in two sections includes trains, buildings, vehicles and people from the 1890s and 1950s. There is more than 1,600 feet of track, 50 buildings, 200 people, a 26-foot bridge,a double helix tornado tower, a river with waterfalls, and five level twin coaster. The track is stainless steel and there are both steam and diesel locomotives. The entire railroad is built at a 1:29 ratio.

Then I continued walking around the castle and took pictures of some of the incredible flowers.

Do you think this brass sculpture was inspired by flowers?
